This is a photo gallery of pink flowers, just to celebrate them, just for fun. I love all kinds of flowers, and pink is a favorite color of mine ever since I was a young girl and my father was growing pink roses in our backyard.

I often go out on nature walks or visit gardens, so I am one of those people that truly enjoys nature and all it has to offer. The more I learn about flowers and their value to our communities and life, the more I am in awe of them. While I love exotic and expensive flowers, I am almost equally fond of the little flower found out in nature, that another person may even see as a weed.

Gallery of Pink Flowers - Photos of some that have crossed my path

Photo 1 - These top flowers are more unique to me, and while they remind me of petunias, I actually think they are another kind of flower. Why I include them here is just simply the fact they came in a potted "bouquet" from my mother on my birthday this last year. I thought they were simple and lovely. They were joined by other flowers as well, but these are the pink ones in the bunch. Its the yellow centers that make me wonder, and add an extra pop of color there.

Photo 2 - These are a type of tropical, dangling and very fancy cluster flowers. They were very near water in a tropical setting and really stood out to me both for their kind of deep pink color and their design. I haven't ever seen anything like these, and I have seen a lot over the last few decades. I loved them just for their unique nature.

Photos 3 & 4 - These look almost identical, but then upon a second look or closer inspection, you will find they are rather different. Their leaves and base of the plant are different as well. Number 4 has a more succulent type leaf and stems, and the other's flowers are a bit different. Both have clusters, or bunches of flowers all together. Almost like ready made little bouquets to enjoy. Photo three has a more intense pink color that I really like.

I know number four attracts moths, butterflies and bees of all kinds, as it is growing currently in my butterfly garden in the backyard. They are a long lasting flower that does well year after year.

Photo 5 - This mauve or "mauvey" pink iris is a real winner! I love the elegance it displays. Many iris like this, especially the bearded iris are like little works of art to me, from nature. They are just amazing.

Photo 6 - The beautiful pink peony, or what I have been told could be called the "Mother's Day Flower" in the area I live. Gardeners wait all year for their peonies to bloom, and very often around here, that day that they open up happens to fall on Mother's Day. I think that is very special. One note on these, is that while they make great cut flowers, you want to double check on spiders before you bring them in. They sometimes have a little tiny one, that wouldn't hurt you at all, but they just appreciate being outside much more. That, and the people that don't like spiders will thank you. These also can get heavier than their stem can bare, so sometimes need staking in the garden.

Photo 7 - This particular hibiscus really caught my eye and is so impressive. The pink on the outer parts of the petals is pretty, but the inside deeper magenta color is also very beautiful against the lighter pinks.

I found some very beautiful hibiscus when I first moved to the area we live in now in the Midwest. I planted them in the backyard, and they bloomed beautifully all Summer. I learned the hard way about growing flowers in your own zone, and not pushing the envelope on that. My neighbor has theirs in a pretty pot they bring in every winter. It works wonderfully.

Photo 8 - An Aster, growing in the Fall. I love this particular pink aster as the color is a bit richer than the other bubblegum pinks or pale pinks that I usually see. Its like a fuchsia color pink almost, or has a glow. The bees and moths love the asters, as do I.

Photo 9 - I love pink pentas, especially up close. This bee also likes the pentas. They make for a great butterfly flower, to attract them to your garden. They don't survive the winters where I am, so if I have them its because I bought them or overwintered them.

Thank you for viewing my pink flowers photo gallery hub, and I hope you enjoyed it.

      Hyphenbird, thank you so much, your comment made my day. :) Glad you stopped by.

      Katrinasui, thank you for stopping by and for your comment. I love yellow and pink together sometimes, or just alone, depending on the flower.

      Anglnwu, thanks so much for that! I will always be glad when you come back, and it makes me happy you like to see the flowers. :)

      They are all so lovely. I tried to find a favorite but decided to be greedy and adore them all. Indeed a beautiful collection of photos. Thank you for the "visit to the garden".

      I can just see your book on a coffee table. You certainly have the material to fill a book. A friend of mine self-published a book and it's doing quite well. Give it some thought. Goodnight, Mary

      Mary, you always bring a smile to my face, thank you very much for your kind words! I never thought about publishing a book on my flowers, but it would be a dream! Thanks for your visit here and vote of confidence in me. :)

      As for Pentas and butterflies, they really do a great job of attracting them. I was so happy to find them when I did. That is one plus you have over me, living in Florida VS. up in the Midwest. I can get them though, and maybe even grow them from seeds. We will have to try that.

      As for bees, I love them too, and so happy to see more of them than we had been for a while there.

      You captured another bee! I can grow the Pentas, and have them in my garden for the butterflies. We grow Hibiscus here too. I'll have to vote this one UP and beautiful, too. Ever thought of publishing a book on your flowers???
